OUR FAVORITE PARTS OF CHINA
The Great Wall of China
One of the great wonders of the world. Being 13,171 miles long, this wall represents a great feat of perseverance and a sign of how important territorial borders were for Chinese emperors over the centuries. Absolutely a must visit if you have the opportunity.
The Terracotta Warriors
This army was created after the death of the first emperor of China, Qin Shin Huang, as a part of the funerary art, with the goal of protecting the emperor in the afterlife.

The Forbidden City
